Welcome to Revive Church! You’re about to hear the second message in our learning series about the Holy Spirit and His power in our everyday life. If you’ve ever wondered about the Holy Spirit or haven’t had a clear understanding about who He is, this series is definitely for you.

While you’re here, share what God is doing online by tagging @revivechurch and @stephankilgore.
Romans 12:17-20 NIV
17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
The Holy Spirit gives us the Power of Forgiveness
John 20:21-23 NIV
21 Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” 22 And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”
Are you sowing seeds of Forgiveness or Bitterness?
Bitterness is seeing the situation with your flesh
Forgiveness is seeing the situation with the Holy Spirit
Acts 7:60 NIV
60 Then he fell on his knees and cried out, “Lord, do not hold this sin against them.” When he had said this, he fell asleep.
1 Timothy 1:13-16 NIV
13 Even though I was once a blasphemer and a persecutor and a violent man, I was shown mercy because I acted in ignorance and unbelief. 14 The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst. 16 But for that very reason I was shown mercy so that in me, the worst of sinners, Christ Jesus might display his immense patience as an example for those who would believe in him and receive eternal life.
